Free local beach shuttle service will be extended for the popular Abbot Kinney Festival in Venice, scheduled Sunday, Oct. 7.
County Supervisor Don Knabe, who represents Marina del Rey, noted that the shuttle service extension was prompted by the festival’s decision to move its date to Oct. 7 to accommodate the Sept. 29-30 closure of the 405 Freeway known as “Carmegeddon II.”
“Thanks to the partnership with Playa Vista, those who want to visit Marina del Rey or travel to the Abbot Kinney Festival can enjoy the ride without worrying about finding parking or dealing with traffic headaches,” said Knabe.
Since it was founded in 1984, the Abbot Kinney Festival has grown in size and popularity. Each year, it attracts more than 150,000 eco-conscious urban singles, couples, and families to the beachside community of Venice.
The free Playa Vista Beach Shuttle will provide service via a special route with stops in Playa Vista, Marina del Rey and at the Abbot Kinney Festival between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
